I am looking for a new tactical drop leg holster for my XD45. Specter Gear has one I loke but I haven't heard of Specter Gear before. Do any of you have any experience with them? What is the quality like? The holster looks good in the pictures and it sounds well made but any company can make their product sound bomb proof.

Or, give me your suggestions for a good tac holster. I have looked at Tactical Tailor, Blackhawk, SOG.

Thanks.

They make great gear, especially slings and chest carriers. If you are looing for a a holster, Safariland makes some of the best holsters, especially their new tripple retention holsters.

I dont know about specter I use to wear a safari land for a lot of years and I like it I just used the single retention thumb break and it was great. Black hawks serpa is nice, I dont like the trigger finger release but the weight carries better becuase it has two straps compared to one.

I had a very bad experience with them summer of 2004, back when they were not called SPECTER GEAR but by a different name then changed around 2005 to SPECTER GEAR, F those guys. I know at least one of the same people from the previous company is still with SPECTER GEAR, again F' that guy.


I just thought of the old name CQB SOLUTIONS was SPECTER GEARS former name, F those guys too.


I'd say try Tac Tailor, Org SOE Gear, John Willis company or a dozen other tac nylon companies out there before using them. My opinion only.

I have used their tactical slings in the 3 gun matches for a few years and they work great for me, better than most others.

I used one when I was on SWAT and it worked fine. I found a drop leg mag holder to be faster, but it seemed to get caught on things when moving through tight spaces such as trailers, buses and trains. Good gear as far as I am concerned.

I'd buy from someone who has better CS then those guys. Put me in a bind up at Valhalla for a few days, claimed to make good on it, failed, back peddled, blamed it on some poor kid when I had correspondence with a higher up. Jeff Shepard or whatever his last name is found out the hard way from me. I hope no one from Specter Gears is here, because if they are, I'd tell them to take a hike.

Most people know me, say I am an easy going guy, but if you BS me, put me in a bind and I catch you in your lies, I will put the screws to you as long as I can.

Again there is AT LEAST half a dozen other very well known and very well respected tac nylon mfg's I'd personally consider them over CQB SOLUTIONS/SPECTER GEAR any day. My opinion only.

Know now we all know exactly what to get him. Everyone send him a Specter Catalog !!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Actually some of the best gear I ever used was SOE gear but the old company. I can't remember what happened to them but they went from having all kinds of gear gear to having almost nothing. Same thing happened with Lightfighter as well. I know there was a bunch of stuff behind th sens but never dug into stuff like that and usually still don't unless it directly effects me. Anyone care to share a condensed version of what happened to these two?

Hey I like your COLD side....

you are looking for a drop leg for an xd...get the T.A.G. universal drop leg holster.... it will carry a pistol or a pistil/light combo

From my observation I would stay away from all those other guys... including spectre....

my choice would be Tactical Assault Gear.... some of the best and innovative nylon on the market... if you sign up for the newsletter they offer 40-50% off all the time.... if your shyt gets blown up or drug or anything... they replace... they also just began theie multicam campaign.... made here in san diego

blackwater is good and allot of thier stuff is clearanced sinced they cahnged thier logo... I am using the disctd molle universal modular holster attached to my padded patrol belt.... they can be had now for 30.00 (wow)

Blackhawk without a doubt. just bought a Omega Tactical vest off ebay for $75.00 used from a guy who had it in the sandbox for a year. after wiping all the dust off of it the freakin thing still looks new. Tough ass gear.

For a drop holster I would go with safari land, the thumb break is easy once you get use to it.

I dont like the fabric holsters.
